I Am Human (BLM)

I Am Human (BLM)

(No.1 of 3) designs from a social justice illustration series I created during 2020 and the black lives matter protests going on around the country. It pays homage to and references an idea similar to the slogan, "I am a man," from the 1968 Sanitation Workers' Strike that Drew MLK to Memphis when 1,300 black workers sought financial justice to demand better working conditions and higher pay. Their stand marked an early fight as part of the civil rights movement in a strike that fatefully became Martin Luther King Jr.'s final cause and the setting for his “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech and his assassination.
